The Descent by WesTalbott The Descent by WesTalbott
Here is another piece exploring the style I created accidentally with this piece. [link]

Just wanted to try a more familiar subject matter and do something less asian looking but still in the same style.

Let me know what you guys think.

Also if you could get this design on a product what would it be?

If this could be stained glass...ah. The colors that would be reflected...
But this is an amazing blend of style for those who adore western mythos and eastern art. Love the added detail of the crows flying about them to give them all movement.
Wonderful designs!

Oooh. If it were not on a straight up print, I would probably buy this on a messenger bag or a note book.

This technique is amazing. I am a sucker for sharp, clean lines and bold colors. Lots of feeling and movement here as well.

I can see this being a popular print.

Your style kinda of reminds me of a stain-glass window, but even better =)
I really like it!

And if I could get this design on a product, probly a sketch book or the cover of a laptop.
Actually, just the cover of a laptop =D

Maybe it's because I have a 6 year old girl, but the first thing this work reminded me of was Sleeping Beauty. I can't remember if this style was used in the original movie, or used as a reference... But the knight fighting off a dragon with the illusion of black crows in the foreground screamed that reference. If I were to suggest a mode of production, I would think of maybe going for a flash animation. I think this style lends a great compliment to that medium. I could also see this as an awe inspiring skin on a guitar.

I really like this style, and the dragon design is sweet! My first thought was stained glass window, but I'd love to have this on my wall :D mural or poster.

btw, is this just pen tool, bucket tool, and some texture overlays? It's a nice style that I'd like to try out!

Personally this is one of those things I'd want as a huge ass print thing on my wall. xD

Or painted directly onto a wall, like a large mural, that'd be epic.

Otherwise I'd think notebook cover was a good suggestion, maybe even on a backpack or bag if it was positioned right!

It looks like it would be part of some awesome medieval game's mythology like the drawings you see when you start a new game in just about every legend of zelda game! Beautiful.
